Hi dante951,

Follow the steps below and see if this fixes the issue:

1. Try to reseat the monitor cables (both power and data cables).
2. As the monitor works fine with other computer, check the monitor settings and the input mode (such as, VGA, DVI, HDMI, etc.). If you don't get video after changing the settings, try to reseat the video card (if any) in the machine. (Note: open the chassis and work inside the machine only if you are comfortable otherwise it is advisable to seek technician's help also ensure that all the power connections and other devices are disconnected before you open the chassis).

If any of the above steps don't fix the problem, do reply with the Monitor's make (model number) and Operating System.

Please do write back to us.
